Regarding the upgrade, I'll go for the pink one but that's just me.

Just wondering, can this chassis be configured as a grip car?
It can be but on top of the cost of the kit, you'd have to switch out more parts to do so. Why not just get the Sakura Zero S. The kit is cheaper and with the extra money you save, you can upgrade.

I have the AWD. Would the slide still be better than the other steering system?

Slide racks have less overall friction and smoother transition from side to side. Definitely looking forward to picking one up. You can't beat the price either! FXX slideracks hover around $100.

Makes sense! I wish they'd hurry up. I'm really tempted to buy the knock-off CNC steering system on eBay. The stock plastics for the steering are terrible.

I took some time, drilled some holes and made my D3 into a rear motor setup similar to the D4 AWD. Now I am stuck on the front one way issue. I have the same question as JatotheRipper. What front one way are you drivers using in your D4 AWD?

The steering just has so much slop that even though I have my front end dialed in pretty well, the trailing wheel at full lock has enough slop to allow it to rub causing a spin out.

I wish they would hurry up and release the slide rack, body mounts and the aluminum spool diff.

You said it, buddy. Steering should have never been designed this way.

I'm very happy with my sensored brushless TrackStar 10.5T /w 120A Turbo ESC. Very programmable, smooth, and easy to drift with (if it wasn't for the steering locking up).

How bad is the steering issue with this chassis, I'm looking to get into drifting and really love the look of rwd drifting.
